Yes, there are some American Revolution connotations behind their choice in band name. Potentially divisive history aside, Light Horse Harry offers a fresh spin on tried and true American sounds. Originally bred in Dallas among high school friends, three of the five members of Light Horse Harry moved on to the University of Texas at Austin where the group now resides. The current incarnation of Light Horse Harry features acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle on top of the typical rock band setup to blend elements of Americana, folk, and roots with contemporary interpretations of country, rock and pop.
Light Horse Harry is set to follow up their 2014 EP Busted in Brownsville with their sophomore effort, San Pedro, to be released this Friday at Spiderhouse Ballroom. Show up early to catch The Rotten Mangos & Wilkinson’s Quartet and even before all that – check out “Momma’s Lemonade” – a crude country foot-stomper that’ll keep you grinning all the way to the release show.
